Beige Light Pullover
250 (300) 350g of beige yarn (90% polyacryl, 10% mohair; 140m/50g);
Crochet hook 5.
Size: S (M) L.
Shells pattern: the quantity of sts is multiple 12 + 1. Work due to the scheme 1, start with 1 WS row. Start with sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with sts after pattern repeat. Make 1st-4th rows x once, then, repeat 3rd-4th rows, make double crochets and single crochets around chain sts of the previous row, starting from the 2nd row.
Fringe of shells: the quantity of sts is multiple 12. Work due to the scheme 2 with circle rows on the edges of pattern 1. Start every circle row with 1 chain st instead of the 1st single crochet and sts before pattern repeat, pattern repeat, finish with 1 slip st in chain st increase. Make 1st-2nd circle rows x once, then, make double crochets only around chain st of the previous row in the 2nd circle row.
Stitches control: shells pattern: 20,5 sts x 8 rows = 10 x 10 cm;
Fringe of shells: 20,5 sts x 2 circle rows = 10 x 3 cm.
Make 97 (109) 121 chain sts + 1 chain st increase and work with shells pattern = 7 (8) 9 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. In 40 cm = 32 rows from the set-up row, decrease ½ pattern repeat from both sides for arm-holes, for this, skip sts in the beginning of row, make slip sts in the end of row = 7 (8) 9 pattern repeats + 1 st. In 56,5 cm = 45 rows (59 cm = 47 rows) 61,5 cm = 40 rows from the set-up row, skip the central 3 pattern repeats (4 pattern repeats) 3 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeat from both sides and finish both sides separately. Make 3 chain sts instead of 4 for each arch of chain sts in the 47th (49th) 51st row from the set-up row and finish your work on the rest 2 (2) 2 ½ pattern repeats for shoulder in 59 cm = 47 rows (61,5 cm = 49 rows) 64 cm = 51 rows from the set-up row.
Make in the same way, as back, but for deeper neck-hole, bind off the central 1 (2) 1 pattern repeats + ½ pattern repeat from both sides in 49 cm = 39 rows (51,5 cm = 41 rows) 54 cm = 43 rows from the set-up row and for smooth rounding, decrease 1 pattern repeat from both sides in the following 8 rows.
Make 49 (61) 73 chain sts + 1 chain st increase for each sleeve and work with shells pattern = 3 (4) 5 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. For sleeve chamfers, increase 1 pattern repeat from both sides on the following 30 cm = 24 rows in 15 cm = 12 rows from the set-up row = 5 (6) 7 pattern repeats + initial and final sts. Make 3 chain sts instead of 4 for every arch of chain sts in the 41st row from the set-up row and finish your work in 51,5 cm = 41 rows.
Make shoulder seams. Make side and sleeve seams. Fasten all the edges with 3 cm = 2 circle rows of fringe of shells, make 16 (18) 20 pattern repeats along the lower edge, 4 (5) 6 pattern repeats on the edges of sleeves. Fasten neck-hole with fringe of shells, divide base sts in the 1st circle row in order to make 4 (5) 5 pattern repeats on back neck-hole, 5 (6) 6 pattern repeats on front neck-hole.
